World Action on Salt. Sugar & Health

World Salt Awareness Week


Since our establishment in 2005, we have coordinated a global Salt Awareness Week. In 2021 we expanded to include a focus on sugar reduction and this marked the first International Sugar Awareness Week to help raise awareness of the damaging effect of too much sugar in our diet.  

These annual campaigns are our chance to talk directly to the general public, Governments and NGOs on the need for salt and sugar reduction and a national strategy to reduce population salt and sugar intake. We will also reflect on the progress made by the food industry to reduce salt and sugar levels in their products so far.

We produce posters and factsheets for download by our members and we will set a theme too, to help guide our members in holding their own salt and sugar awareness events. For more information, please click the links on the left.
